Close, but no cigar:

Linux 2.0.29 #11 Sun Feb 16 01:35:16 EST 1997 i586
/lib/  gcc version  ldd: version 1.9.2

Fresh enough for you? Still kaffe/biss does not work. Kaffe without
biss seems to work fine, like you said.  Biss is broken since 0.9.0
release of kaffe, at least on my box.

What did ou say the second step would be? (:-)
